After a rather slow start, and a restart, as I found a little error on my Pimpeliese shawl, I finished it .  It is a super great pattern, and knitted very quickly once I got the hang of it.  The weather was not to warm, and I had to wait for a bit of sunnier days before I could block it and make sure it dried.  But it is done!  And turned out pretty neat.

I also finished the Travelling Cable Hat beanie I was working on.  Super pattern, specially since I really love knitting cables.

I had given this old basket of mine a make-over some time ago, but could not find the right handles I was looking for.  But being persistent, I found these handles, and they seem pretty okay on the basket.  Now I can use it again, and carry my WIP’s around in it.

And of course, what is knitting without having a pair of socks on the needles.  This is my first “big” colourwork knit, and I am enjoying it tremendously.  I am knitting the socks inside out, which is pretty funny, but it is the only way I could figure out how to ensure the floats are even and not to tight.  They are for my daughter and she has tried them on a few times now to ensure the fit is still good.
